relevant prior art, etc. There are also patent search sites with
arcane interfaces and this concept might be extendible for
||I thought automating the searches would just constantly issue random words to the search box, generating page after page of search results that no human wanted or could ever read, overloading the server, bringing own the halfbakery and half the internet that pigggybacks on it, leading to financial crises, global power cuts, mass panic, nuculer war, breakdown of civilisation, cannibalism, famine, asteroid strike, and other things.

||Also, animate the annotations in the form of surreal figures
engaged in a furious pillow fight, while other surreal figures
distracted and went off on tangents.
